Roy Ellis AKA Mr. Symarip Plays SF Sat

Roy Ellis AKA Mr. Symarip is playing San Francisco on Saturday with a very solid lineup of talent not only backing him up but playing support on the show as well. His backing band is none other than the cats on Rhygin Records who hardly ever come out The Sand Dollar Sound with direct support from top Bay Area vintage sound purveyors The Impalers & Boss 501. What a show!

He appeared on KUSF Radio ‘Wake The Town’ show to talk about the event and discuss his musical career so far. Here’s a cool picture of him in studio tonight.

I've been involved in the Los Angeles music scene since at least 1995 going to shows, promoting, spinning records and running labels. Ska and Early Reggae are my passion among other things of course.
